His great understanding with Colm Cooper

  • Go To

"We've a very good understanding really. I know his game pretty much completely. I know his runs. He knows my runs. I know what runs he likes and he knows where to get me the ball. I think for us as a Kerry team, we should just be trying to get it to him as good as we can because good things happen when he touches the ball."

On Kerry freshness

"I'm thoroughly enjoying training. We have got a great mix in there with Donie Buckley and Jack and Alan O'Sullivan and the different training methods we're using. A freshness has been brought to it. The biggest thing is the attitude and togetherness of the team. It's been a very enjoyable year so far."

On the need for video technology in all sport

"I think the game is fine. The biggest thing for the GAA is getting the big calls right. That's the problem most sports have -- you see it happening weekly in the soccer... Everything's grand then there's a big handball and they miss it. It's the same in our games and for players, managers and fans, those are the ones you want them to get right. The other stuff -- was it a foul or wasn't it a foul -- you can take it or leave it. It's the big ones that are being missed."
